Jason Isbell shares another track from new album – Listen

Jason Isbell has released another new track off his forthcoming album ‘Reunions’ called ‘What’ve I Done to Help’ which has been recorded with his longtime backing band the 400 Unit. The record is once again produced by Dave Cobb, who he’s collaborated with on each of his albums since 2013’s ‘Southeastern’.  As RS describe it, “at nearly seven minutes long, the album’s opening track offers a slightly different sonic approach from the Alabama-bred singer-songwriter. Anchored by a prominent bass line from the 400 Unit’s Jimbo Hart, the song is a moody, slow-building mid-tempo treatise on helplessness and inaction in the midst of societal turmoil.” “World’s on fire, and we just climb higher to where we’re no longer bothered by the smoke and the sound,” Isbell sings. “Good people suffer and the heart gets tougher/Nothing given, nothing found.”
